Cerebral edema is excess accumulation of fluid (edema) in the intracellular or extracellular spaces of the brain. Contents. 1 Signs and symptoms; 2 Causes. El edema cerebral subyacente en esta patología puede ser de varios tipos: citotóxico, vasogénico, intersticial o hidrostático. El aumento de la presión. Aumento patológico de la cantidad de agua en el cerebro con incremento del volumen del parénquima cerebral. Vasogénico Citotóxico.

If brain herniation occurs, respiratory symptoms or respiratory arrest can also occur due to compression of the respiratory centres in the pons and medulla oblongata.

Ischemic colitis small intestine: It is an extracellular edema which mainly affects the white matter via leakage of fluid from capillaries. Cerebral edema Synonyms Cerebral oedema Edema darker areas surrounding a secondary brain tumor. Focal Generalised Status epilepticus Myoclonic epilepsy. As water enters white matter, it moves extracellularly along edeja tracts and can also affect the gray matter.

Cerebral edema

CT sign of brain swelling without concomitant parenchymal hypoattenuation: Check for errors and try again. Normally, the osmolality of cerebral-spinal fluid CSF and extracellular fluid ECF in the brain is slightly lower than that of plasma.

Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Retrieved from ” https: It is generally accepted that cytotoxic edema is dominant immediately following an injury or infarct, but gives way to a vasogenic edema that can persist for several days or longer.


The one sequence which is able to identify cytotoxic edema, and was thus responsible for a revolution in the imaging of acute ischemic stroke, is diffusion weighted imaging DWI.

You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. Loading Stack – 0 images remaining.

Clinical Course and Prognostic Signs”. Migraine Familial hemiplegic Cluster Tension.

As is the case with CT, the changes colloquially ascribed to ‘cytotoxic edema’ are ciottoxico fact mostly due to ionic edema and are described separately. As the pathophysiology of these two types of edema is different, as is their imaging, they are discussed separately.

Interstitial edema occurs in obstructive hydrocephalus due to a rupture of the CSF—brain barrier.

D ICD – Diffusion-weighted imaging shows cytotoxic and vasogenic edema in eclampsia. Articles Cases Courses Quiz. Thrombus Thrombosis Renal vein thrombosis.

This creates an abnormal pressure gradient and movement of water into the brain, which can cause progressive cerebral edema, resulting in a spectrum of signs and symptoms from headache and ataxia to seizures and coma. Most changes in morphology are associated with cerebral edema: It is most frequently seen around brain tumours both primary and secondary and cerebral abscessesthough some vasogenic edema may be seen around maturing vasogneico contusion and cerebral hemorrhage.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Cytotoxic cerebral edema Cytotoxic brain oedema Cytotoxic brain edema. Four types of cerebral edema have been identified: Cytotoxic edema is seen with various toxins, including dinitrophenoltriethyltin, hexachloropheneand isoniazid. Insomnia Hypersomnia Sleep apnea Obstructive Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome Narcolepsy Cataplexy Kleine—Levin Circadian rhythm sleep disorder Advanced sleep phase disorder Delayed sleep phase disorder Nonhour sleep—wake disorder Jet lag.

Cerebral edema can result from brain trauma or from nontraumatic causes such as ischemic strokecanceror brain inflammation due to meningitis or encephalitis. Log in Sign up. DWI changes Case 1: In most instances, cytotoxic and vasogenic edema occur together. This type of edema may result from trauma, tumors, focal inflammation, late stages of cerebral ischemia and hypertensive encephalopathy. Treatment generally focuses on the underlying cause of cerebral edema.

In cytotoxic edema, the blood—brain barrier remains intact but a disruption in cellular metabolism impairs functioning of the sodium and potassium pump in the glial cell membrane, leading to cellular retention of sodium and water. It can occur in Reye’s syndromesevere hypothermiacerebarl ischemiaencephalopathyearly stroke or hypoxiacardiac arrest, and pseudotumor cerebri.

This causes a rapid uptake of water and subsequent cerebbral of the cells. Vasogenic edema occurs due to a breakdown of the tight endothelial junctions that make up the blood—brain barrier.
